We stopped at the Jefferson City location because I read great reviews. We walked in the restaurant and started reading the menu. There was a lady waiting for her to go order. I had asked her if she had eaten here before. She smiled and said yes. I asked her what she liked. She smiled and said, "Everything"! We ordered... More

So - thinking outside the box, a wonderful family had Lutz's bring in a roasted pig for a family reunion. It was spectacular - so keep this in mind if you are having an event where you want to make a big splash. Hubby and I headed down to Lutz's in Jeff City for some more about a week later.... More

The atmosphere is just a bit better than a fast food or convenience store, but the barbecue is delicious.

We stopped for lunch when we were out running errands.My mom had raved about the food-I had to admit I was skeptical-how good could a place be that was attached to a convenience store? Was pleasantly surprised when I walked into the shop and smelled the food.It was very crowded at lunch time/ usually a good sign, and it was... More

You know you are great when you have a BBQ Restaurant attached to a nice gas station and it is packed. Skip the sauce and enjoy the smoked meat. Amazing place. A bit of Southeastern Pork, great TX beef and KC Ribs.

Lutz's BBQ has become one of our families favorite restaurants in Jefferson City. Excellent BBQ with great sides like seasoned potato chips and tasty coleslaw.

Traveling to see children and grandchildren in Kansas City, they always insist on bringing BBQ and chips from here. I think there's some irony here.

The best bbq in town! Their beef brisket is slow smoked with just enough seasoning. They have great spiral potato chips they make from a whole potato. They are priced a bit high but certainly worth it for the taste! Their coleslaw and baked beans are also good.

The fried fish was mushy, the pork loin was very, very tough, the burnt ends were just chunks of fatty brisket. The beans and the fries were good.
